The first day of Christmas vacation

. . . and we had to do something other than hang around the house!  We went to our favorite park-in-the-foothills that has interesting water features due to a warm spring that comes up from the ground in that location.  Lots of ducks and some fish and turtles in the closest pond.
They came up out of the water and didn't seem to be looking for handouts, just interested in the little patch of grass between the water and the bank of the pond where I was standing.  I think they were wild ducks, not ones that hang around the park and that's why they weren't looking for human food.

The park people added a couple of free telescopes last year, but this was the first time I noticed them.  You can get a nice look at the birds in the lake as well as the mountains in the background and a close view of other visitors as well.  LOL

My girls get a kick out of climbing up the palm trees until it gets scary.  For Mom too!
